Whole of Government supplier

Govspace is a whole-of-government service that makes it easier for agencies to engage with the public. It is a blogging and website platform managed by the Department of Finance and Deregulation (Finance). Agencies will be able to use the Govspace platform to host their own blogs and other websites. Using Govspace means that your agency no longer needs to consider infrastructure or software issues. The agency can then concentrate on content and community management. Teleserye

Security issues 

  • Don’t allow attachments in comments
  • While blogging should be personal, there may be some subjects which may result in the blogger or commenter being “under fire”.
  • Put a name to your posts - just a first name is fine (if required for privacy). If there are multiple authors, use their different names with their posts. People blog, not organisations (organisations send announcements).Teleserye
  • Users should be reminded to be wary of providing details that may identify them such as personal email addresses etc
